NSU Demon school spirit was in evidence throughout Natchitoches as the Demons held their Homecoming parade and pep rally Friday October 26th. The parade began at the university’s main gate and progressed to the downtown Riverbank. NSU Greek organizations, ROTC, campus ministries, campus organizations, spirit groups, Scholars’ College and the NSU Homecoming Court all competed for top honors in decorating their floats and displaying school spirit. Second Street and the riverbank were lined with eager Demon fans from throughout the community who enjoyed the parade and caught candy and trinkets thrown from the floats.

The parade ended at the downtown riverbank with a pep rally. Fired up Demon fans packed the stage and seating areas. The NSU band kept spirits high playing the fight song as cheerleaders performed for the crowd. The Demon Dazzlers and Pom Line also performed routines for the audience. The evening ended with a concert that kept the dance floor crowded for hours.

The Natchitoches Parish Journal is looking forward to a Demon victory in Saturday’s Game. Come out and join us for some exciting gridiron action. Fork ’em Demons!
